AUDIO: Evangelicals for Peace

by The Editors | February 2013

Take heart! A new generation of evangelicals for peace is on the rise.

It appears a new generation of evangelicals for peace is on the rise. And it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Last fall, evangelicals from a range of viewpoints gathered at Georgetown University for the first Evangelicals for Peace conference to explore what a distinctive evangelical contribution to peacemaking might look like. In the February 2013 issue of Sojourners magazine, “A Heart for Peace" features nine different perspectives from this emerging biblical movement for peace.
